 What TPE Gloves are Made Of

TPE gloves are made of thermoplastic elastomers, polymers that can be molded more than once when heated. Thermoplastic elastomers also have the same elasticity as rubber.

 

Industrial fabricators classify thermoplastic elastomers as “specialty” plastic resins for two reasons. Firstly, they’re produced at lower volumes than “commodity” resins like polyethylene and at higher costs as well. Secondly, they’re used for more specialized applications than “commodity” resins.

 


Besides TPE gloves, products including adhesives and footwear are manufactured using thermoplastic elastomers.

 

TPE Glove Markets & Industries

Like CPE gloves, TPE gloves are designed for the food service and food processing industries.

 

When to Use TPE Gloves

TPE gloves are another excellent alternative for vinyl gloves since they’re less expensive. They’re also a good alternative for poly gloves.

 

TPE Glove Characteristics

TPE gloves, like CPE gloves, are known for their durability. They weigh less in grams than CPE gloves and are also flexible and resilient products.

Choosing the Right Disposable Gloves

It is not surprising in the COVID-19 era that the disposable gloves market is set to grow by 14% in the next seven years. The global market of nitrile gloves in particular will be worth $8.98 billion according to experts.

 


Disposable gloves are now one of the most commonly used safety products in the world. They have always been associated with doctors, nurses and the medical sector as staff strive to prevent cross-contamination between patients and staff. But, now disposable gloves are commonplace as the general public strives to protect themselves from coronavirus.

There are several different types of disposable glove and they all have different roles.

 

Latex Gloves

Latex is thought to be the most versatile glove, but it does contain a protein that can cause an allergic reaction in some people. And, because they are made of a natural material, they are biodegradable.

 

Polyethylene Gloves

Poly gloves are commonly worn in the food preparation sector as they are easy to get on and off quickly when chefs and prep staff are moving between different tasks.

 

Neoprene Gloves

Neoprene is thick and heat resistant, and these types of gloves are reusable.  They are commonly used for dishwashing and tasks that involve water. These are also really good protection against chemicals, acids and other dangerous substances.

 

Vinyl Gloves

These are also commonly used in the foodservice industry. They are comfortable to wear, safe and latex-free, which is important in food preparation as latex can cause reactions in some people.

 

Nitrile Gloves

It is said that these are the most versatile gloves available. They are the most commonly used in the medical sector. They come in various thicknesses – from 3mm for the food preparation industry and up to 6mm for the industrial sector. They can be bought allergen, latex and powder-free so different businesses can buy the type that most suits their needs.

 

Powdered gloves or non-powdered gloves?

Powdered gloves are easier to put on and take off. They prevent friction between the skin and the glove material, which also makes it less likely to rip or tear during use. The powder in gloves is normally made from cornstarch, but even so, they are still not usually used in the food industry in case of cross-contamination with the food that is being prepared. The main benefit of non-powdered gloves is that they don’t leave the remnants on the powder on hands after use.

 

Latex v Nitrile

Latex gloves are strong and durable. They are very elastic, which makes it easy for people to put gloves on and take them off. It is a natural material – made of rubber, which is biodegradable. They are soft and flexible, which makes them comfortable to wear, and they are safe to wear for long periods of time.

Many people who wear latex gloves say that they feel like a second skin. Surgical gloves are often made of latex as it helps surgeons retain good movement and dexterity during their procedures.

The main drawback of latex gloves is the fact that they can cause allergic reactions. It is said that six percent of people are sensitive to latex. Reactions can vary from minor rashes to anaphylactic shock. 

Nitrile is a synthetic version of latex. It is chemical and puncture-resistant and it is fast becoming the most popular type of glove used by hospitals, emergency staff, police officers, security guards, housekeepers, factory workers and vets. Nitrile is formed by combining acrylonitrile and butadiene to create a synthetic copolymer.

Nitrile gloves are the hypoallergenic choice. They are easy to put on and they are often used in emergency rooms where doctors might not know what allergies a patient has. But nitrile gloves, while they are very strong, they are not as comfortable as latex and they are not recommended for work that needs precision, fine movements and dexterity. They are more likely to be used in examinations and by doctors and surgeons carrying out minor procedures.

 

What are the protection levels of gloves?

Nitrile gloves will protect against most chemicals and corrosive materials, but it is not recommended that they are used in high-risk situations. They are waterproof, greaseproof and oil proof. Rubber gloves are good to use if you are handling mildly corrosive products. Neoprene gloves are recommended for use with most solvents, oils and corrosive materials.

 

Where to buy disposable gloves?

In these days of the coronavirus, disposable gloves are now a common find on the shelves of supermarkets, pharmacies and home improvement stores. Many online stores are now stocking them, and there are even special disposable glove stores on eBay.

 

Wearing of disposable gloves has been commonplace in many sectors for many years, but in these new times we live in almost every worker in every sector is wearing gloves for the protection of themselves and others.

Do disposable gloves guarantee safe food?

A pair of single-use foodservice gloves is a tool that can help ensure safe food. Like any tool, it is only effective when properly used. Having dirty hands beneath the gloves, not changing them frequently, cross-contaminating by handling both raw and ready-to-eat foods, handling cash with gloved hands, or not changing them after touching one’s face, clothes, hair or other parts renders them ineffective and not necessarily better than clean bare hands. Conversely, changing gloves frequently and using them properly can be safer than bare hands as the barrier prevents pathogens missed in handwashing such as those found under a wedding ring or fingernails from contaminating food.

Many municipalities require gloves or another barrier such as wax paper, tongs or a serving spoon when handling ready-to-eat food. In others, while it may be perfectly legal to, say, mix a pasta salad with one’s bare hands, the effect of doing so is off-putting, unsavory, and just not a smart strategy: put some gloves on.

In all, given the context—handling food that will presumably be cooked to a safe temperature and clean hands, you are in the right and the comment is unfortunate and hopefully will not sway readers away from dining with you.

How to make a deal with Chinese Boss?

Now,Chinese Bosses belong to three kinds of people are born in 60’s, 70’s, 80’s.
60’s boss like to drink the wine to make a deal with customers. This age of people catch up Chinese reform of opening policies. They dare to open up business and achieve the success. They have poor childhood,but poverty make their mind firm. They work hard to be the rich in the future. So they can drink more wine for business. Representative persons are Fuyao glass boss, Huawei boss. Doing business with 60’s boss, you must show your firm will and courage at the table.
70’s boss prefer to drink the tea with customers to do business.They have better childhood and good education. Their goal is going for perfect and success. Doing business is like making friends, slow business, slow discussion. If you want to make a deal with them, you should have patience and careful planing.
80’s boss would like to eat delicious food with customers when they are talking about business.
80’s people are rich second generation.Their pursuits are happy and stimulate. Business culture is fast and decisive. There are a lot of money in their pockets because first generation earn enough money for them. You want to make a deal with them, just get their trust.
All the above bosses, I think most of them have same obvious character while not all have these characters. When you come to China for business, you can make a reference. That’s all!!

New Yorkers Ordered To Wear Face Masks When Not Social Distancing




NEW YORK, NY — New Yorkers will be forced to wear a facial covering such as a bandana or face mask when they're in public and cannot socially distance themselves from others, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Wednesday. Cuomo said he would sign an executive order mandating the facial covering and give people three days to become compliant with the new rules. Cuomo said civil violations, while not enacted yet, could be in store for people who are not wearing a facial covering in public and are not at least 6 feet from others.
The order includes public transit and even busy sidewalks and intersections, Cuomo said.
"Stopping the spread is everything," he said. "How could you not wear a mask?"

The latest severe measure comes as 752 more people died of the COVID-19 disease, bringing the state's death toll Wednesday to 11,586.
At his daily briefing Wednesday, Cuomo outlined steps that must happen before he will reopen the economy and emphasized the pandemic won't end until a vaccine or medical treatment is created and widely available — a major undertaking that he said will require the federal government's assistance.
"It's over when we have a vaccine," Cuomo said, noting that could be 12 months to 18 months away because the FDA must first perform tests.
Furthermore, once the government decides to reopen the economy, it won't do so all at once. Cuomo stressed it will be a "new normal," and said it will likely be a gradual phase-in of businesses favoring the "essential nature" of the company, as well as whether the company requires workers to be in close proximity to each other. Those that are deemed by the state to be more essential and don't require workers to be near each other will likely be allowed to reopen first.
But even before that happens, the nation will need to scale up testing for antibodies and diagnostics, the governor said. Specifically, finding millions of tests, places to conduct and analyze the tests, and even ramp up the availability of the chemicals in the tests.
"We're going to a different place," Cuomo said. "And we should be going to a different place."
The bottom line: The United States needs large scale testing, and only the federal government has the ability to do it.
"We can't do it yet," Cuomo said, referring to New York's state government. "That is the unvarnished truth."
So far, the state, which has about 19 million people, has performed about 500,000 COVID-19 tests total over the course of a month.
"You get a sense of the scale we need here," Cuomo said.
While state health officials developed their own antibody test — performed with a finger prick — Cuomo noted it will only be able to perform about 2,000 tests per day unless the FDA allows the state to ramp up to about 100,000 a day.
"Testing capacity to me is like what ventilators were over the past month," Cuomo said, noting that experts predicted the state would be thousands short of what would be needed.
Cuomo once again called for the federal government to pass legislation that would send funding to state governments to allow them to carry out essential functions.
The state on Wednesday continued to see its infection curve flatten.
Total hospitalizations dipped slightly to 18,335 from 18,697 a day earlier, the net change in hospitalizations fell 362 and the net three-day change in hospitalizations fell by 124. New daily COVID-19 hospitalizations, however, ticked up to 2,253.
The net change in intubations continued to improve, falling to minus 2 after peaking at over 350 earlier in the month.

What is N95 surgical face mask?

KN95 is a respiratory protective device designed to achieve a very close facial fit and very efficient filtration of airborne particles. Note that the edges of the respirator are designed to form a seal around the nose and mouth.
Surgical N95 Respirators are commonly used in healthcare settings and are a subset of N95 Filtering Facepiece Respirators (FFRs), often referred to as N95s.It'sis a loose-fitting, disposable device that creates a physical barrier between the mouth and nose of the wearer and potential contaminants in the immediate environment. These are often referred to as face masks, although not all face masks are regulated as surgical masks. Note that the edges of the mask are not designed to form a seal around the nose and mouth.
The 'N95' designation means that when subjected to careful testing, the respirator blocks at least 95 percent of very small (0.3 micron) test particles. If properly fitted, the filtration capabilities of N95 respirators exceed those of face masks.
So it can be used to block foam at the mouth and nose.

Dow climbs 300 points as new Fed stimulus offsets historic unemployment filings

US stocks climbed on Thursday, continuing Wednesday's gains, as the Federal Reserve announced an additional $2.3 trillion in aid to businesses and governments.
The new Fed measures include an array of new programs to help boost the economy hit by the coronavirus pandemic. The central bank will also buy investment-grade and junk bonds. 
"Main Street should be feeling a slight sense of relief today," Seema Shah, chief strategist at Principal Global Investors, told Business Insider. "The latest measures emphasize how committed the Fed is to providing relief and economic support where they can, stretching outside the typical toolkit in order to deliver assistance."
